Ilocos Norte's Annie Luis is first Filipino performer at the Beijing Opera



Annie Luis is the first Filipino graduate of the Peking Opera Performance program of the National Academy of Chinese Theatre Arts. She completed the program in 2008 and proceeded to finish a master’s degree in Directing Traditional Chinese Theatre.


Hailing from Laoag, Ilocos Norte, Luis performed with several groups, including the Bayanihan Dance Company, after studying theater at the University of the Philippines.

She eventually found her way to Beijing with a grant from the China Scholarship Council. Luis had to learn the Chinese language for a whole year before she could even begin the performance program.

Luis currently works at the International Affairs Office of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts while still dancing with Bayanihan.
